After a $3 million renovation, the former Bulfinch Hotel became The Boxer. The exterior mimics New York’s Flatiron building; thanks to the triangular shape, many rooms have panoramic views. The hotel has native touches; mini-fridges are stocked with local treats such as Cape Cod chips. The hotel’s restaurant, Finch, serves Boston staples. Pets welcome. BEST MAKEOVER.
